Townsend, Laura

Originally from Lawrenceburg, Indiana, Laura spent some time in Colorado before returning to the Midwest and settling in Northern Kentucky. One of the first things she shipped when she joined the Legion is also one of the most unusual: fresh animal hides. Her positive attitude helped her to raise an empowered, creative and amazing son, and is evidenced in her favorite movie quote from Out of Africa: “When it gets so bad that I think I can’t go on…when I’m certain that I can’t stand it, I go one moment more, and then I know I can bear anything.”
